SES lands £16m waste package

Building services specialist SES has landed a package worth at least ВЈ16m to help build 27 household waste recycling plants across Greater Manchester.

SES will work alongside main contractor Costain over the next three years to install M&E systems including external lighting, sprinklers, external water mains and CCTV systems.

Costain's ВЈ397m contract for Viridor Laing is one of the largest PFI deals of its kind in Europe.

Work includes the provision of five mechanical biological treatment plants, one materials recovery facility, four in-vessel composting plants, six transfer loading stations, two green waste facilities and works on 24 household waste recycling centres, spread over a 50 mile radius.

A main factor in the choice of SES for the contract was its safety record. CEO Mark Perkins said: "Working on any waste project brings its own health, safety and security issues, both for our operatives onsite and, ultimately, the personnel working on these sites and the general public using them.

"I’m encouraged by the proactive nature and the joined up approach adopted by the client, principal contractor and SES Safety Teams to ensure that safety and security is paramount at all times whilst onsite and going forward.”
